On Wednesday 29th and Thursday 30th November, we stepped back in time at our Dickensian Christmas market, where we brought the enchanting spirit of the Victorian era to life, nestled amongst the hustle and bustle of the 21st century.
Honouring the great Charles Dickens, many of whose writings were inspired by the Bloomsbury, Holborn & Farringdon areas, the market brought Dickensian characters, carolers and snowy street scenes, to St Giles Square, by Tottenham Court Road. A charming array of market stalls sold handcrafted gifts, hearty food and mulled wine and we were also joined by the Mayor of Camden, who perused the stalls and sampled street food.
It was wonderful to be able to bring St Giles Square to life and sprinkle a little festive joy across the district. We hope you were able to join us!
